Back to 5 stars
**revised** Developer published a fix to the update screen default. Everything is back up to speed and no more waiting for drug info if there is slow or no WiFi access. Thank you! The newest version of the app defaults to the update screen. I can’t tell you how much I HATE this. If there is a poor signal or no WiFi access in a building, it is not possible to navigate away from the update page until the device has failed to make a connection. How embarrassing when a physician stops me in the hallway or calls and I can’t look up the information of concern. It just makes an angry physician who isn’t interested in waiting while I stare at my unresponsive screen. If I could keep the drug data in my head for instant recall, I wouldn’t need Lexicomp in my lab coat pocket at all times. Please change this!
Update: The latest update fixed my 2 problems I wish this new update didn’t automatically check for updates when you open the app. I work in a place that doesn’t get reception or WiFi so I’m stuck on that update page for at least a minute until it fails to connect. I can’t navigate away from that update page when I don’t have reception. Also when you search for a drug I wish it would show the drugs that begin with the letters you typed first. For example, if I search for a drug that begins with H, show the H drugs first. Don’t show me every single drug that has the letter H in it.
Like other recent reviewers, I am annoyed the app goes to ‘updates’ whenever. The app is opened. The vast majority of the time when I open the app I looking up information, not updating. And most of the time that I am looking up information, I am on my cell service which I am not going to use to update my app. I will do so when I am on my home WiFi.
Update is awful
Update is awful. Difficult to use. Pediatric dosing missing (for example cefdinir).
Too many clicks and not optimal search function
Not happy with new update. App defaults to update page instead of home page. Then you have to 'click' four times just to get to the search field. THEN if you search using only the first few letters of a drug name, the search results pulls in ANY drug name that contains those letters, even if those letters are in the middle of the drug name. Why doesn't the drug names that begin with those letters appear at the top of the list?
WoW! If this is just the start ...
I LOVE it! Much faster and MUCH less crowded! My sometimes tired eyes would struggle before. It still needs some love here and but I like it so far. Long awaited for sure! Can’t wait to see where it goes next release. 👍🏼
Issues with 5.0
Agree with most recent review regarding annoyance of app automatically checking for updates every time I open it. Also, the search function is now a filter function in Lexi-Drugs, which is useless and slows me down when trying to pull up individual medications. The update is great otherwise, but these two issues are significant.
Home screen much more user friendly. Search results much better organized
Update is hard to use
This new version of mobile Lexicomp is very hard to use now that I can no longer go straight to the section of the monograph that is needed. It’s really annoying to have to scroll all there at down to PK or the Preparation section because it’s farther down.
Now we’re talking!
Glad they are bringing the Lexi-Comp app up to the same excellent standards as their UpToDate app. Also...SPLIT-SCREEN ability with the iPad pro!!! 👍👍👍
App is absolute trash. The subscription/log-in process is convoluted. Passwords don’t function properly, and the reset only resets the password for the web store but not mobile access. I wish my institution didn’t use this service.
the best, but buggy interface & $$$
The pediatric drug monographs and lexicalc are top notch. This is the medical reference tool I use most often on my iPhone. worth the subscription fees. Databases should auto-update whenever connected to wifi. Minor annoyance. IV compatability and drug ID keep coming back. i try to delete from my home screen and menu bar and they keep coming back. I will never subscribe to them. I have little use for them. For the money I'm paying for multiple other databases, the app should be able to save my view preferences. major annoyance.
App keeps crashing. It’s completely unusable now
After using the Palm OS version of the software for many years, I switched to an iPod touch. Being able to wirelessly update the databases when I'm home is awesome. Unfortunately, the software has locked up a few times at work. Hopefully it's not a recurring issue. Like the Palm OS version, Lexi-Comp still cannot search within content. You are required to search drug listings beginning with the first letter or number. Once you select a drug monograph, a jump menu lets to move to different sections, but again, there is no search capability within the monograph. Also, the iPhone/iPod touch version of the software does not display your subscription information, and it's not available within your online account either. If you want to know when your subscription is going to expire, you have to call them.
I love lexicomp. They are very comprehensive, the information is trustworthy, and my pharmacist career has been nothing but progressed by lexicomp in general. That being said, if you're about to drop the significant amount of money this software costs, DO NOT. This is based solely on the app. The app crashes and has to be deleted and re-installed very frequently, and this issue has me extremely upset about it. This is a lot of money, and definitely not worth the poor performance. At this point, I cannot wait for this subscription to run out so I can try to find something comparable. Imagine, you need to see if two meds are stable together in a med bag, and your app won't allow you to acces IV compatibility. What do I do? Run the 15 flights of stairs and two buildings over that separate me from my textbook references? No. This is why I pay hundreds of dollars for the lexicomp app as a reference. Extremely dissatisfied.....
